About Rockville: From Early Days to Present

As early as 8000 B.C., Rockville was home to semi-nomadic Native Americans. However, by 1700, these indigenous inhabitants had been driven away by English colonists. The only thing they left behind was Sinequa Trail - a carved path that's now downtown Rockville.

The 18th century saw many changes to Rockville. Between 1717-1735, Arthur Nelson obtained its first land patent. Around 1750, Lawrence Owen opened a small inn in the center of Rockville. This small inn became one of the most populated rest areas in the colony of Maryland. In 1776, the Maryland Constitutional Convention made Rockville the seat of the county's government.

Because of this, Rockville grew in prominence. However, its name wasn't coined until 1803. In 1873, the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad was created; thus, making traveling between Rockville and Washington, D.C. easy. In 1891, Rockville's first trolley service connecting to the Georgetown and Tennallytown Railway was introduced. It ran for four decades but was beaten out by automobiles.

The transformation of Rockville progressed steadily until the Cold War hit. Because of its negative impact, most of Rockville's businesses had to undergo closure and demolition. However, Rockville survived its difficult times. Now, the city is booming with entertainment and art. The Fitzgerald Theatre in Rockville Civic Center Park provides different entertainment, and near it is the second home of the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra.
